Becoming a big fan of these wines which can fool the best tasters to believing it’s high quality Burgundy...Precision and elegance, lemon lime, fresh herbs, sea salt and minerals. Finishes with very good length and focus. No decant, slow oxed for 3 hours.

The 2017 Lingua Franca ‘Bunker Hill’ Chardonnay is a terrific new release wine by this talented winemaking team. The nose evokes toasty brioche with wild mushroom and green apple that all combine in the glass. The palate unveils a silky texture and a bright minerality. Kumquat, green papaya and shades of white truffle with earthy undertones round out this outstanding flavor range. This finishes exceedingly long with lemon cream and minerals. Highly Burgundian and downright thrilling now, this highly nuisanced Chardonnay will cellar well for a decade or more. Drink 2019-2032- 94
